spectacle has little to match the prospect of the murdochs and brooks appearing before the select committee. but did the lineup live up to the hype? how did it shaped up as an event? and what did it tell us, if anything, about the state of our institutions? first, did it cut it as drama? >> rupert murdoch is a bit like king lear, and he is rather surprised how it has turned out. the tension between james murdoch and elizabeth murdock is one of the stories. another is the way that rebecca brooks. and then you have the slightly unexpected situation that comes about because of that. >> you claimed they had made a major mistake. can i ask what mistake you were referring to? >> one of the thing about courtroom drama, there is the unexpected hero. in this instance, it was tom watson. one of the other features was the long pauses, and pauses in theater tend to be associated with chekhov and harold pinter. these were softened daunted -- these were self indulgent beyond that point. >> we spoke to a lawyer who worked for robert maxwell's sons when he faced and p.'s in the 1990's. >> to me, the most e
